New brochure focuses on EU Timber Regulation

The EUTR comes into force in March 2013, and aims to combat international trade in illegally harvested timber and timber products as part of the fight against deforestation. The EUTR Support Study project provides background information for the secondary legislation needed before the Regulation comes into force.

The brochure gives an overview of the project team’s work, and the study’s final recommendations. These are being considered by the European Commission, which will adopt more detailed rules in June 2012.
